GO TRAIN Workshop

Nov 25 2019

The GO FAIR International Support and Coordination Office organizes a workshop on “FAIR training and skills” at the ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics in Hamburg on 25th November 2019 from 9:00 until 16:00 CET.


The objective of the GO TRAIN workshop is to bring together people, concepts and materials from different countries, institutions and disciplines to exchange experiences about FAIR skills and training. Bringing together practitioners from different backgrounds should be an excellent source for each participant and presenter to benefit from new insights and take it on to reuse. New collaborations can help towards a joint implementation and enhanced benefit of an international network. As a result of the workshop a series of good practices, materials and ways of engagement will be derived.

09:30 – 10:15 Terms4FAIRskills, a terminology for data stewardship and
its use cases in training
A growing body of generic learning resources are available to meet the capacity demand for training in FAIR data stewardship. At the same time many relevant learning resources are in domain or institutional silos, hard to find and to reuse. Are the competences stable enough for consensus on a community-driven terminology? What difference would it make to your community if learning resources about FAIR were more FAIR themselves?
